igloohome Smart Deadbolt 02

The Good Igloohome's Deadbolt 02 is a versatile lock with a keypad, a Bluetooth fob and a physical key. With added battery jump start, it seems nearly impossible to get locked out.

The Bad The app doesn't do quite as much as you'd think. No locking your door or viewing the lock status.

The Bottom Line If you're looking for a touchscreen keypad, Igloohome's Deadbolt 02 is a great-looking lock with physical and Bluetooth key options.

Igloohome's Deadbolt 02 makes lockouts a thing of the past

Singapore-based startup igloohome released its second generation deadbolt this year. The Deadbolt 02 is a sleek and simple bluetooth deadbolt with a keypad and physical key. If you're looking for a Bluetooth lock with a touchscreen keypad, the $199 Deadbolt 02 is a sensible choice.

The Deadbolt 02 works via Bluetooth, turning your phone into a Bluetooth key. The touchscreen keypad locks and unlocks your door with a PIN. Having both of these options makes the Deadbolt 02 a valid alternative to using a traditional unconnected lock. You can still access your home with a physical key, though you will need a sharp object to depress a button on a rather flimsy-feeling plastic cover to reveal the keyhole.

Installation is simple enough. Instructions aren't included in the box, but they are available on the app or igloohome's website. Four AA batteries power the lock, and you'll receive notifications when they're running low. If you find yourself locked out of the house with the lock's batteries dead, you can jump start the lock with a 9V battery and two nodes built into the base of the lock.
